    Hello All!

    So I recently bought two bantam Easter Eggers. There is one that I am pretty convinced is a pullet (Chirp). The other one I am not so certain (Chip). They are about 3-3 1/2 months old. Chip is much larger and a lot more protective over Chirp. If another hen goes near Chirp she gets very pushy in her ways. Thank you in advance!

    You have guessed correctly. Chip is a cockerel, and Chirp is a pullet.
